The attendance was around 7,000 for that fight. Not great but I wouldn't say terrible. The problem was that it was held at the Silverdome, a venue that holds 90,000 people
. This fight was going to be at Joe Louis arena, and since there was no hockey going down the Joe was probably willing to pay more than most venues but thankfully hockey has returned and this fight is moving to a smaller(4800 seat), and the much more historic Masonic temple. Just the architecture alone makes going to the temple worth it. With only 4800 seats I'd imagine it will be a full house and hopefully a loud one.
